Note: If some aspect of the webinar still isn’t working (such as audio or you can’t see the screenshare) check if you are already using a different meeting platform such as Zoom or Webex. Make sure to “quit” those other applications before joining GotoWebinar.

Audio

I can’t hear the audio

You should have selected either Phone Call or Computer Audio in your audio settings, which will connect you to the audio conference.

Note: If you don’t have audio and the Audio tab in the Control Panel isn’t showing, make sure you answer the question asking if you want to use computer audio or phone in.

  1. Expand the Audio tab in the Control Panel
